I certainly don't have the experience there that you do, but when I was up there the fishermen tended to mark their pots with white plastic water or Clorox bottles, so any day there was chop on the water they were near invisible.
However, I cannot abide the total disrespect for others that it takes to crowd pot floats into the marked navigable channels as the Narragansett Bay fishermen do, and I do get a lot of pleasure when my Spurs do their job.
As for bottom cleaners not liking Spurs, it is the responsibility of the boat owner to inform any diver they hire that there are Spurs on the shaft and after that I see no reason to concern oneself with what the diver may do to themselves. Situational awareness is every bit as important under the water as it is on deck.
